For months now I have had a big problem with my Virgin TiVo box. Random things record and it is never stuff I choose to record. I have now a few times been on the main channels page and a new recording has popped up as if I chose to record it. There are a load of random series links in my record section that I have no idea about. At first I thought it was next door but then IR won't work unless they were pointing their remote through the window or something!
I will be happy to help find out what's causing these recordings to appear for you. I suspect it may be the 'Suggestions' feature that's part of TiVo®. This will automatically record any programmes that may be of interest to you. This is based on your Thumb's Up/Down ratings. This feature can be turned off by using these steps:
HOME > HELP & SETTINGS > SETTINGS > RECORDINGS > SUGGESTIONS > SELECT 'NO'
Once this is turned off, this will stop the TiVo® automatically recording any suggested content.
If this is not the case and someone else has setup the Series Links, you can check out your Series Link lists via:
HOME > MY SHOWS & RECORDINGS > MANAGE MY SERIES LINKS > SELECT THE RELEVANT SERIES LINK AND PRESS 'CLEAR' ON THE REMOTE CONTROL AND IT SHOULD GO OFF THE LIST FOR YOU.
I shall also pop our Discover TiVo® link here incase it maybe useful for you as it will tell you more about Suggestions on the TiVo® service
Let me know how you get on, I'm here to help if you need me.
